India will be attempting to bag the T20I series against South Africa when they meet each other in the fifth match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday, June 19. I have picked the best team and player betting tips from the IND vs SA match predictions.
It has taken Dinesh Karthik 16 years and 36 matches but finally, he has his first half-century in the format. And he scored it in India's biggest win over South Africa and fifth-biggest in T20Is, to leave the series locked 2-2 ahead of Sunday's finale. Only three of their batters got into double figures but it was enough with the determination of the team’s bowling line-up. All of India's bowlers bowled decently, but their stand-out was the pacer - Avesh Khan. He dismissed Dwaine Pretorius as his first wicket and then took three wickets in this third over to finish with career-best figures of 4 for 18. As we look for the best betting picks from the IND vs SA match prediction, I have taken the privilege of picking the three of the best ones.
Let’s have a look at the best team betting tips from the IND vs SA match prediction.
The five match series is now locked at 2-2 after India beat the Proteas by 82 runs at Rajkot in the 4th T20I. India had started the series on a shaky note conceding a 2-0 lead to SA. But they came back roaring to win the next two and even the series 2-2. India will have more confidence and momentum heading to the 5th T20I at Bangalore and we will pick India as the winner in this IND vs SA head-to-head encounter. India has played 19 games against South Africa till date. In all those clashes, it was IND who came out victorious on majority of the occasions (11). India started cold in the first two games but geared up, especially in the bowling department to clutch two victories batting first by 48 and 82 runs respectively. The middle batting order did a great job saving IND’s innings with Pandya coming up with 46 runs from his bat while Dinesh Karthik smashing an incredible 55 in the game. Avesh Khan would be the hero of the match and picked up 4 crucial wickets from the game. It was the 14th over where Khan shined and managed to scalp 3 wickets. With the current situation, IND will go in as match favourites and with Pari Match offering the odds of 1.54, it is a great bet to take.
Let’s have a look at the best player betting tip from the upcoming IND vs SA head-to-head match.
Although the Delhi Capitals skipper, Rishabh Pant, was remarkable in this season of the IPL, he is missing the mark with the bat in the current series against South Africa. Pant has an experience of 41 T20I games and is a much more pronounced name in the younger Indian cricket team, being wicket keeping as a fielder. He has scored 740 runs in those T20I innings with an average of 23.12 and could only manage three fifties in those 14 innings. Not only is this low for a wicketkeeper batter, his recent form should entice you to pick this hot betting tip. He has led the team in the 4 T20Is of the series and managed to win 2 of them but failed to contribute significantly with his bat. He scored a total of 57 runs in 4 games with an average of 14.25. Pant posted the scores of 29, 5, 6 and 17 runs in the four matches of the series and could only score over our target on a single occasion. He has a poor track record batting against SA where he mustered 80 runs vs SA in 6 innings with an average of 13.33. This seems like a promising figure and should encourage you to pick him from the IND vs SA match prediction. From averaging at 30.42 in 2021 to 23.40 in 2022, his form has taken a dive recently. With Pari Match offering the odds of 1.87 for Pant to score under 24.5 runs, you should pick it for a glorious return.
A wicketkeeper and left-handed opening batsman from Jharkhand, the same state MS Dhoni hails from, Ishan Kishan led India at the Under-19 World Cup in 2016 in Bangladesh, where his team finished runners-up to West Indies. His relentless efforts in the batting department across all domestic tournaments attracted the eyes of the national team where Kishan seemed to be adjusting just perfectly. He has played 14 T20I matches so far scoring 480 runs with an average of 36.92. It is laced with four fifties. He is coming off the IPL 2022 where Mumbai Indians had a terrible campaign but Kishan tried pulling his team forward to his best capabilities. He scored the highest in the team with 418 runs in 14 games with an average of 32.15. This is his first series against South Africa where he played four games so far with scoring 191 runs in 4 games with an average of 47.75 and a strike rate of 146.92. He is, in fact, the highest run scorer of the series. He managed to register the scores of 76, 34, 54 and 27 runs in those innings, scoring over our target on all occasions. He averaged at 28.25 in 2021 and worked on his skill to elevate his figure to 40.77 this year. With that established, you should pick Kishan to score over 24.5 runs from the IND vs SA match prediction to earn yourself a bonus. Pari Match offers the odds of 1.87 for the same.
